How to Design a Shed for Your Garden or Yard?



If you have a garden, or if you have a vehicle and you do not have a garage, then you can design a shed to keep your plants safe. You can create a design according to the space that you have. Or alternatively, you can also use foldable sheds and combine different varieties of wood to design and perfect the art of making sheds:

Openhouse in Hollywood Hills by Xten Architecture

January 15, 2016 Modern House Design

Description from Architect:
The Openhouse is embedded into a narrow and sharply sloping property in the Hollywood Hills, a challenging site that led to the creation of a house that is both integrated into the landscape and open to the city below. Retaining walls are configured to extend the first floor living level into the hillside and to create gardens on two levels. The front, side and rear elevations of the house slide open to erase all boundaries between indoors and out, connecting the spaces to gardens on both levels. [ Xten Architecture ]

Glass, in various renditions, is the primary wall enclosure material. There are forty-four sliding glass panels, each seven feet wide by ten feet high and configured to disappear into hidden pockets and allow for uninterrupted views and access to exterior terraces and gardens. There are also fixed glass walls, mirror glass walls and light gray specular glass panels which lend lightness to the interior spaces.

January 14, 2016 minimalist house design

This minimalist house was designed by Andrea Oliva from Cittaarchitettura. According to the Digsdigs : It occupies a flat area about 60m away from the street. The house has a rectangular shape of approximately 11 m wide, 34 m long and 6 m tall. It visually consists of two elements: the porch made of concrete and finished with white plaster, and the main body inside of it. Large windows that frame a beautiful landscape around it are protected by the depth of the porch during the summer. These windows have wooden frames with laminated glazing so they are also protected from cold winds during the winter. The flat roof features solar panels that provides the home with an electricity and a hot water. source
